Music is provided by Pete Jacobs and his Wartime Radio Revue. (See videos at http://www.wartimeradio.com. The three woman singers in military outfits who sound like the wartime Andrew Sisters, sound JUST LIKE the Andrew Sisters. Go watch the videos on them and you will see. And if you are at least 65 like me, you will remember the Andrews Sisters on the radio and early B&W TV in the 50s.

NOTE...I just received word that the three women in military outfits who sound like the wartime Andrew Sisters, sound JUST LIKE the Andrew Sisters----WILL NOT BE AT THE EVENT. HOWEVER, PETE JACOBS AND THE WARTIME RADIO REVIEW IS A GAS IN ITSELF AND YOU WILL LOVE THEM.
